Nigeria bounced back thrashing Argentina in World Cup friendly

Aguero heartbroken as Nigeria have bounced back from the sleeping giant state to thrash a star studded Argentina 4:2 in a World Cup friendly match.

Kun Agüero fainted in the dressing room and was taken to a nearby hospital for a general checkup."

Banega and Aguero had secured that comfortable lead, but Iheanacho, after scoring himself, teed up goals for Iwobi and Idowu. Iwobi notched the fourth, too, and there was no way back for Argentina.This was only Nigeria's second win against Argentina - and their second in which they've scored four times!

Houston's undocumented immigrants fear Deportation, won't Evacuate

Houston's undocumented immigrants fear Deportation, won't Evacuate

Houston is the fourth-largest city in the United States and has the third-largest undocumented immigrant population , about 575,000 people, according to a report this year by the Pew Research Center.

Texas’s looming crackdown on illegal immigration has already driven many of those immigrants further into the shadows, and possibly, out of the state. Rumors has it that ICE is waiting at shelter entrances and will detain and deport any illegal immigrants. This led to over half a million undocumented immigrants living in fear of deportation and won't evacuate Hurricane Harvey's flood. 

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection agencies said they would not target undocumented immigrants at evacuation sites, shelters or food banks, and would prioritize “lifesaving and life-sustaining activities” during the storm and its aftermath.The City of Houston also released a statement in English and Spanish that: 'We will not ask for immigration status or papers from anyone at any shelter. This rumor is FALSE! '' ''No vamos a pedir documentos ni estatus migratorio en ningun albergue este rumor es FALSO!''

3 years #BringBackOurGirls: Nigerian stolen girls

Three years after 276 schoolgirls in Chibok, northeast Nigeria, were kidnapped by Boko Haram on 14 April 2014, the Nigerian stolen girls are still no where to be found. The kidnapping sparked the global #BringBackOurGirls campaign that failed on its own promise to bring back the stolen girls.

21 of the stolen girls were released in October 2016 (more than 2.5 years) in a deal brokered by the International Red Cross. More than 63 have escaped from the Boko Haram camp.

On the eve of the third year anniversary, Nigeria's government released a statement that it is in talks to release the remaining captive Chibok girls, the president said on Thursday, April 13, 2017.

The government "is in constant touch through negotiations, through local intelligence to secure the release of the remaining girls and other abducted persons unharmed," President Muhammadu Buhari said in a statement.

Of the girls taken from their school in the northeastern town of Chibok in 2014, 195 are still missing.

 Yahya Jammeh's Last Day in Gambia
It looks like Mr Jammeh's will defy The African Union, ECOWAS and U.N. Security Council to be forcefully removed as a dictator president of The Gambia. Regional leaders including former Ghana president John Dramani Mahama, Nigeria's Bushari and Chairman of ECOWAS, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf failed to strike a deal in talks with Jammeh to hand over power to his opponent Adama Barrow who won polls conducted in the country last December. Last minute meeting with has not help as Mauritanian president says he's "less pessimistic" for a resolution of #Gambia impasse after meeting President Jammeh. The Mauritanian president left The Gambia and no sight of Jammeh was on board

Jammeh, who has been president since he led a coup 22 years ago, initially accepted the result of the Dec. 1 election — but dramatically changed his mind a week later, saying that the results were void because of voting "irregularities." Yaya Jammeh is now living on 'Barrowed time'

Adama Barrow is due to be inaugurated as the new president on Thursday, and West African military forces are poised to move in. Completely empty streets in usually busy parts of the #Gambia. People staying indoors. War is unavoidable.
